Is Jacobs going to get time at catcher this season? I've heard he'll get some, but some other people have said they haven't heard anything like that. If so, how soon will he get 5 games?

ive read he will just be the emergency catcher...with willingham being the backup, and being in the outfield.
though ive also read the marlins may sit him against lefties.

Josh Willingham was given a vote of confidence by manager Joe Girardi, but has yet to be named the team's No. 1 catcher.
Willingham has yet to play the outfield this season and Girardi said there are no plans to play him there. Girardi said this about his potential catcher, "He's still a viable everyday catching candidate, so if you're an everyday catching candidate, the chances of you playing in left field aren't real good."

I think Jacobs is the 3rd catcher, he won't get 5 games behind the plate until Willingham or Olivo get banged up.
